Topics: Skiing snowboarding winter sports

Discover the sport of snowkiting! Skiers and snowboarders no longer need to wait in lift lines. With a little wind to fill their kites, they can cruise a frozen lake or field. Snowkiters can reach speeds of 60 mph, jump and land gently back on the ground. Host Marianne Eaton takes a lesson from Rachael Miller, a certified instructor from Stormboarding, a Vermont business that specializes in wind sports. Then we visit Sand Bar State Park, and the frozen surface of Lake Champlain for the 3rd Annual Stormboarding Kitestorm.
